Former Bosnian President Ejup Ganic was arrested at London's Heathrow airport today on behalf of Serbian authorities for alleged war crimes.
British police said Ganic, 63, was detained under a provisional extradition warrant.
A Foreign Office spokesman said the Serbian authorities must now provide full papers to support their extradition request before a date can be fixed for an extradition hearing.
Belgrade wants to try Ganic and 18 other former Bosnian officials suspected of war crimes and illegal conduct of war in a 1992 attack on troops of the former Yugoslav People's Army in Sarajevo.
